Boardgames in the News: Mark Watson’s Inner Child

As has been well documented, as adults playing boardgames has become increasingly acceptable, there have been more frequent articles in the national press.  This includes a regular column in the Guardian as well as television features.  Most recently, a documentary on our “Inner Child” presented by the comedian Mark Watson was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday.  The program starts discussing adults sliding down slides and swinging on swings and moves onto a visit to the boardgames café, Draughts, about two minutes before the end.  It is just a short segment in a longer program, but Perudo, Nautilus, Hey, That’s My Fish!, Knit Wit get a mention as well as more well known games Kerplunk, Hungry Hungry Hippos and Articulate!.
